The rich heritage of the Central Bucks School District is evident in all that we do. Our students achieve at high levels, and we are continually cited as one of the finest school districts in the region, state and country. Yet we know we must strive for continuous growth and advancement. The field of education is an ever-evolving one, and our vision reflects that.
This strategic plan is truly a collaboration, reflective of the great diversity of perspectives and experience of our faculty. Over the last year, our teachers and administrators met to chart a path forward for continuous improvement and educational excellence. Meeting in groups we discussed, debated, and analyzed; Where are we now as a school district, and where do we want to be over the next five years? Our conversations were informed by educational best practices and inspired by our nation’s educational leaders. They were also focused around the singular goal of doing the best we possibly can for each of our students.
We set goals annually for the most essential elements of our school system: our academic programs and achievement, professional development for staff, technology infrastructure, facilities management, connections with our community, and our fiscal responsibility. Our strategic plan addresses each of these areas in detail, with summaries being represented in this document.
As we progress through this plan, we will gather feedback from parents, students, community members, and our staff. We’ll issue annual updates and adjust course as needed. Our plan is a beginning that we will build on as we move into the future. We value each other’s insights and opinions, and we will work collectively toward our goals.
I’m very proud of the excellent work that occurs daily in the Central Bucks School District, and I’m excited about the possibilities that exist. Please join us as we look ahead. The future is extremely bright.
